COLT 42.04 Forbidden Romance on a Global Stage

This course explores the international perspectives on the romance genre from antiquity to the present. We will investigate how the genre has been constructed, institutionalized, appropriated, and re-invented in international socio-cultural and historical contexts. Situating romance literature in both regional and global contexts, the course will look at the genre’s enduring popularity across different historical periods and national boundaries while examining topics such as: gender, sexuality, marriage, loyalty, family, class, nation, censorship, the commodification of desire, and homoeroticism.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
